YOU GET A KICKSTARTER! AND YOU GET A KICKSTARTER! AND YOU GET A KICKSTARTER! (It is sad that we already live in a world where certain children do not understand Oprah references.)

  1. I was basically ignoring Comic-Con coverage, but I remember reading a blurb of an interview at the Veronica Mars panel where Rob Thomas seemed really apologetic about having to use Kickstarter to finance the movie and made a joke about how next time maybe the studio would pay for the project (as it is their job). The fact that he was rather meek and funny about having to beg in public to get money for his work makes me feel okay about donating money to said project. Also: Piz was wearing a “Team Logan” shirt at the panel (though Logan was wearing a “Team Piz” shirt which is annoying but also that actor is a big time Scientologist so his decision-making is already established as crap).

  2. Hey guys, I have a kickstarter too! It’s just for money for, like, food and my mortgage and bills and if I want to save for a vacation or whatever. So you should contribute! If you contribute more than $10,000 you get an autographed copy of my photo! You’re welcome!!!

    • A photo of the actual you or a photo of Tina Fey signed “Truckasaurus.”?

      • Where’d that damn period come from??????

      • A $10,000 donation will get you a photo of the real me with my real name
        A $12,000 donation will get you a photo of Tina Fey signed “Truckasaurus Period”
        A $15,000 donation will get you a photo of the real me signed “Truckasaurus” (no period)
        A $20,000 donation will get you a photo of me holding the photo of Tina Fey signed “Truckasaurus Period” making a “silly” face and with the signature “Photo! Period!”

  3. If you give to my kickstarter, I’ll record a DVD commentary for the movie of your choice! I have two kids under 3, so if the movie came out since 2010, I probably haven’t seen it, so there might be long periods of silence, followed by me saying, “Ohhh, look at that… hey, it’s that guy from that thing!”

  4. “With the current climate in The Hollywood Studio System it’s not an encouraging look for Independent Filmmakers. I’m not hating, just stating the facts. Super Heroes, Comic Books, 3D Special EFX, Blowing up the Planet Nine Times and Fly through the Air while Transforming is not my Thang. To me it’s not just that these Films are being made but it seems like these are the only films getting made. To The Studios it seems like every Film must be a Home run on a Global scale, a Tent Pole Enterprise, able to spin off Sequel after Sequel after Sequel after Sequel after Sequel after Sequel.”

    Says the director of a remake of Oldboy.

  5. I haven’t watched Spike Lee’s video, but if he doesn’t include this guy from the Melissa Joan Hart Kickstarter video, I’m not sure if I even need to.

  6. What’s he trying to fund, a movie called Do the Wrong Thing? Because this is definitely not the right thing to do, Spike Lee.

  7. i love the oh-so-subtle credit he takes for launching the careers of very famous hollywood actors. like, if spike lee hadn’t featured these folks they would just be poor people who can’t beg for money on the internet for their “art” projects. the best one is kerry washington. yeah spike lee, save the last dance was totes a “spike lee joint.” we all remember the radical spike lee type imagery and camera used to capture julia stiles doing three dance moves in a predominantly black club. and samuel l. jackson too, you totally featured him and created his career, quentin taratino did nothing to help that fool out. see, what i am saying is, spike lee does not know how to beg for money from people who are poorer (more poor?) than him on the internet.

  8. over a million dollars? Are you shitting me? This is just stupid.

    Someone give me a thousand dollars and I’ll make an independent movie. Iphones are acceptable video cameras, right?
